A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips,
and a liar giveth ear to a mischievous tongue.

On Jordan’s Stormy Banks
On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand, and cast a wishful eye to Canaan’s fair and happy land, where my possessions lie.
All o’er those wide-extended plains shines one eternal day; There God, the Son, forever reigns, and scatters night away.
No chilling winds, nor pois’nous breath, can reach that healthful shore; Sickness and sorrow, pain and death, are felt and feared no more.
When shall I reach that happy place, and be forever blest? When shall I see my father’s face, and in His bosom rest?
Refrain: I am bound for the promised land, I am bound for the promised land; O who will come and go with me? I am bound for the promised land.
